POOL4TOOL Supplier Portal
The production sector is also following the growing trend of using IT solutions and supplier portals to optimize sourcing processes. POOL4TOOL has become a critical tool for many global and regional purchasing organizations.
What is the POOL4TOOL Supplier Portal?
Our customers use POOL4TOOL solutions to improve their souring processes and to facilitate transparent communication with their suppliers. The portal is a web platform that is easily accessible anytime, worldwide with any web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Safari,etc.). The POOL4TOOL Supplier Portal is your central interface to your customers - from the initial contact up until the final invoice.
Companies can use POOL4TOOL to create a central platform, from which they can standardize processes companywide and where they can share important information. Some POOL4TOOL solutions are only available for purchasers (e.g. commodity management), but many others support tactical and operative sourcing processes as well as communication with suppliers, such as Requests/Offers, Orders, or Complaints.

In addition, POOL4TOOL’s solution portfolio also overs several important processes for quality control, for example: sampling the initial sample, issuing special releases, or managing complaints.
